So sorry for your loss. I have known Muriel for about 20 years, when my Mother moved a couple of doors down from Muriel's house and they became neighbors. Even after my Mother died, I would stop over at Muriel's occasionally to say hello. She would always offer me a drink and a couple of jokes, She was quite a night owl, and I would see her at Panera at 10 PM, even when in her 90's.
It is so hard to lose a mother. It was good to see her family gathering around, travelling such a distance. I am sure it made her last days easier. May she rest in peace. She fought the good fight.
